In this decade, Ego is very prominent in politics, religion, media, and even in technology. We are entranced with “selfies”. We twitter about the minutiae of what we are doing on an hourly basis. We want people to see us and to be aware of us, and we want to do things. We are stuck in the idea that we are important to other people.
Ego is caught up in drama. We want to create a scene. We want people to choose sides. We want others to say, “Look at him/her/them.”
And all the while, we need peace. Our soul and spirit wants us to be quiet and attentive to what goes on around us.
